Sunday July 23rd to Friday July 28th

CL Jazz has been running weekend and summer courses for twenty six years.  The summer week is more of a jazz holiday with plenty of playing and learning opportunities You will have many opportunities to play and sing jazz in a sociable and supportive setting, mixing structured facilitated sessions and informal jam sessions. Singers and instrumentalists of all abilities and experience are very welcome.  We cover a wide range of styles and encourage participants to extend their experience.    There are usually approximately equal numbers of men and women participants, and in some circumstances children can be accommodated and involved in musical activities.

The summer course includes structured group sessions, free time (to play/sing with others, practice or laze by the pool), performances, late night jam sessions and much talk and laughter at the bar. There is also usually a barbecue, concerts and a cabaret.  Vocalists and players are encouraged to perform numbers of their choice with a rhythm section in informal settings in the bar, or a club type atmosphere as well as giving a final concert.

The course is held at Caer Llan House which is near Monmouth, 15 miles from the Severn Bridge. Caer Llan House is a study centre and is particularly suitable for the course given its relaxed and friendly atmosphere, good facilities, playing areas, bar and beautiful location. Accommodation is usually in three/four-bedded rooms with en suite facilities. All meals are provided.

All facilitators are experienced at running jazz workshops for a range of abilities.
